Milk soap recipes are a great way of pursuing natural skin care. Milk contains lactic acid that acts as a gentle exfoliant for your skin. Exfoliation is an important process in healthy skin care.
For gentle exfoliation, milk containing skin products are ideal.
Milk is also great for your skin because it contains vitamin A and vitamin D. These two vitamins as well as the many other nutrients found in milk are great for obtaining soft and healthy looking skin.
